From the car park, circular walk up to the windmill and trig point with Derryderrymark05/01/2019
Visited trig point, old windmill and numerous lumps that were potentially the summit after walking around quarry.assynt_bob01/07/2018
Wandered up here with mummy, daddy, granddad and nutty nanny. Loved the “castle” (old windmill) near top and did my summit poses on top of trig point before exploring more with daddy.Seumas Kerr01/07/2018
I walked up to the summit after looking at the mine and information board.Alancache27/04/2018
Interesting hill devastation project. With Jenx after H2000nordicstar23/03/2018
Visited all likely points including the old windmill, the trig and a point about 40 metres west. Whether a 'highest natural point' still exists is impossible to say (rather unlikely, I would have thought). But well worth a visit.David Purchase24/07/2017
From Point Lynas caravan parkbardolph14/07/2017
Short walk in fairly grim weather while the rest of the family ate their lunch in the car! Attractive moonscape with ruined windmill near summit.Herbert Anchovy16/02/2017
Parked in the car park to the west which was busy on a late Wednesday afternoon. Then paths to back the Tump, trig and former windmill in stunning light for a cool January day.Dugswell225/01/2017
From car park to Wjimbloomer08/01/2017
Explored the paths around the old quarry and the abandoned windmill. Cold but sunny day late November. Another bag for young Archie.W111KYB27/11/2016
From good car park to W on B5111. Took the direct route up and over the spoil heaps but there is a good wide path all the way to the windmill and co-located trig pillar. Difficult to know where the natural gound lies. Took a view it was a spot approx 40m due W of the trig.jonglew18/09/2015
With Bev. Interesting hill.simon and co21/08/2015
From car park,what an amazing place! I know it's industrial but different-worth a visit.Rob5007/07/2015
Fascinating place. With Wendy.ijpowell11/06/2015
Very wet day - logged trig point and nearby geocache whilst I was therebirder195125/04/2015
As Fergalh: Good path runs almost directly to Tower.GordonAdshead22/04/2015
2nd visit. very windy. saw a bit more this time. must come back in summer.mattcymru07/03/2015
Climbed as part of a 17km trail hike from holiday cottage at Cochwillan, near Traeth Dulas. Followed quiet lanes up past windfarm, then took heritage trail from the car park clockwise to the summit. Returned on bridleway on east side of the hill to the lane, and so back by outward route. A very interesting hill to explore, using the information boards. Extensively altered by man, so who knows where the original natural summit once stood? Perhaps not at the trig point. Really a 'Bing' (artificial hill) now.marktrengove15/11/2014
Came here after Mynydd Bodafon. Not far to top. Looks like i didnt go to actual high point! Fantastic place though. I can say ive been to Mars!mattcymru14/11/2014

On a tour of Sir Ynys Mon bumps. From P at SH437905. Last visited 37 years ago on university field trip. Still eerily spectacular although there is a little more vegetation at the lower edges of the spoil.summitsup16/06/2014
Fantastic place. Well worth a visit.destaylor17/04/2014

Also a Dewey's notable hill.clivevilla30/03/2011
Very different hill from what I was expecting and not quite a mountain. Still worth bagging though.DanTrig09/08/2008
Carpark beside B5111 1km west of summit at SH 43675 90520. Not exactly a pleasant hill but interesting all the same.David Gradwell28/08/2005
